A Conversation for Investigation into the Quantity of Heat
insurgent Started conversation Jul 19, 2002
I dabble a bit in Chemistry myself, so let me point something out.
"Every quanta of heat added after this phases liquid water into vaporous water (steam)."
Let me give you the specific heats for the various stages of H2O:
C Ice = 2.0 joules/gram
Heat of Fusion(Hf) = 333 Joules/gram
C Water = 4.184 Joules/gram
Heat of Vaporization(Hv-this is the one that seems in error to me) = 2260 Joules/gram
C Steam = 2.1 Joules/gram
2260 Joules seems to be much higher than a quanta ( I forget the number for a quanta at the moment...)
Nice job of tackling this subject though.

ARGH, I knew I'd do that
Steams C = 2.0 J/g
Ices C = 2.1J/g
